While the numbers for wrestling-related programming were up this week, WWE SmackDown was down and scored its lowest non-holiday viewership on Syfy.
Last night's episode garnered its lowest non-holiday audience for a first-run episode since moving to Syfy in 2010. The show averaged 1.981 million viewers, down 10% from last week's 2.195 million viewers. Since moving to Syfy, the show has only dropped below 2 million viewers for a first run episode once: last year's 4th of July episode, which averaged 1.881 million viewers.
For the night, SmackDown was #8 in total viewers, as well as #8 in the 18-49 demo.
